Noises during spin cycle - Top Load Washer

  • The lid is locked during operation for safety.

  • It is normal to hear a noise when the lid is locked or unlocked. Do not try to force the lid open if it is locked.

  • The wash motion switches from wash plate rotation to tub rotation at the beginning of the spin cycle. When this happens, you may hear a clicking noise.

  • If the load is unbalanced, the tub will not turn evenly, causing a thumping or banging noise.

  • If the load is unbalanced, pause the washer and redistribute the load more evenly. Press Start to resume the cycle.

  • If foreign objects become stuck between the wash plate and the tub, or if a wire is caught in the wall of the tub, you may hear a screeching or rubbing noise when the tub is spinning. Stop the cycle and remove the laundry. Check the tub for coins, wires, or other foreign objects.

  • If foreign objects are found, remove them from the tub.
